'Imagine' wants me to immediately find a 30 gallon Super-Hefty bag for all the vomit and bile that's coming up. What an insipid, childish song. That it has become a touchstone of 'spirituality' makes me glad I went with the 30 gallon size. The only song I do like post '66 is this, probably b/c my father wore the grooves out on it.

Not doing it for me. I like my heroin songs from VU.

I did mean to agree with you yesterday on It's Alright Ma, w/ the Band. Cranked that sucker up a few times.

I hope things are well for you and yours BD.

Thanks. I hear you re VU - and hope things are well with you and yours as well. Not following French Open, but am following new advertising campaign by WTA. Me likey - and I have a soft spot for slavs...

Funny, but our firm has this "Golden Banana" award which they give our periodically to someone that did something good on case. No cash or anything, but you get a little monkey that sits on a wooden block with a bananana and over the years little items get added. Last time around I sent out the VU album cover in an email to congratulate the winner and our demure, little old lady librarian sent me back an email telling me how she loves that album. I then told her I have an original banana sticker album framed at home, and I looked at her differently after her response:

wow, that is really neat. to have any Warhol framed on your wall is so cool. so many of the albums lost their banana peel entirely, or they were so badly worn they didn't look that great. Now I have a "Best of Warhol" CD that I play sometimes and still have my trusty turntable. Nico rules :) and I must admit I really like how the song "Heroin" builds and builds up in intensity and "I'm waitin' for my man, 26 dollars in my hand" another favorite. anyway.... "that's my story".

The old man is getting back in the saddle (feeling a little frisky today) and the kids are growing like corn, missus getting by. Been a rough spring. But we move on.

WTA kicked Sony Erickson to below the fold so to speak. I think women tennis athletes are the best in the world, by far. At times 3+ hours on court with no hugs (coaches on the court is just stupid and insulting). They replayed one point by Wozniacki where she ran 160 Yards(!) and lost the point. I know it's clay, but she has to get an offense weapon if she wants a major. Kim lost today. :-(

Imagine what the little librarian did while listening to Run, Run, Run or Venus in Furs. Shiny boots of leather indeed. Sorry for the image.

Can you invite me over one day? Tour the office, see some memorabilia, meet the family (I agree with your assessment about Slavic ladies. Passionate. Whew!), go see a show at a club. I'm really an excellent guest. :-)

I love Heroin (the song). Cale recounts playing this at a HS in NJ in '65 , among other songs from the Banana album. Wonder what those boys and girls thought? He said no one danced or clapped. He also felt they were a bit too young for such fare. Indeed. You are a lucky man to have intact Warhol art. An intact banana as well! Have you seen this,
13 Most Beautiful... Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests.
It's on Netflix instant. I assume you have a copy of Drella.
This is such a beautiful, ugly, maelstrom of a song. Andy said it was just beautiful.

Heroin

I don't know just where I'm going

But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can

'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man

When I put a spike into my vein

And I'll tell ya, things aren't quite the same

When I'm rushing on my run

And I feel just like Jesus' son

And I guess that I just don't know

And I guess that I just don't know



I have made the big decision

I'm gonna try to nullify my life

'Cause when the blood begins to flow

When it shoots up the dropper's neck

When I'm closing in on death

And you can't help me now, you guys

And a

You can all go take a walk

And I guess that I just don't know

And I guess that I just don't know



I wish that I was born a thousand years ago

I wish that I'd sail the darkened seas

On a great big clipper ship

Going from this land here to that

In a sailor's suit and cap

Away from the big city

Where a man can not be free

Of all of the evils of this town

And of himself, and those around

Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

Oh, and I guess that I just don't know



Heroin, be the death of me

Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life

Because a mainer to my vein

Leads to a center in my head

And then I'm better off and dead

Because when the smack begins to flow

I really don't care anymore

About all the Jim-Jim's in this town

And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds

And everybody puttin' everybody else down

And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds



'Cause when the smack begins to flow

Then I really don't care anymore

Ah, when the heroin is in my blood

And that blood is in my head

Then thank God that I'm as good as dead

Then thank your God that I'm not aware

And thank God that I just don't care

And I guess I just don't know

And I guess I just don't know

Thanks. Have Drella but didn't know re the netflix thing...

and you have an open invite whenever you get out this way to the crumbling, decaying, bankrupt golden state. Recalls the line by Dennis Hopper (who made a nice Leo Castelli to Bowie's Warhol in Basquiat) in River's Edge that "California is like a beautiful junky - she's dying, but doesn't see the scars" (or something to that effect). Too bad I can't find that scene:
